Kiss The Rim: Impact rookies, it is so surprising?

For many years now, the NBA has been home to fresh, raw high school talent and one and done college freshman. Most notably John Wall and his one year and done at Kentucky and then there was LeBron James who came straight out of high school in his home state of Ohio. These type of players are rather freakish, in a good way, with their talents and everyone knows they will take the league by storm. What about the guy who plays three or maybe four years of college ball, racks up an All-Conference bid and possibly a nice run in the NCAA tournament? Yes, I'm talking about, "that guy." Well this year there have been some rookies even a comeback player I would like to take a quick glance at and show you why they are impact players for their respective clubs. Ready? Here we go.

Newcomer to the Big Apple and second round draft pick out of Stanford, Landry Fields. Fields worked hard in preseason and in training camp and now is the starting shooting guard for the revamped Knicks. The rookie has an array of skill and displays them nightly when he gets his 29 mintues on average and drops nearly 10 and a half points a game. Through watching some of this youngster in battle, I noted his tenacity and fearlessness against bigger opponents. He is not afraid to guard another club's best player or wrestle in the post for a loose ball or rebound. His jumping ability allow him to finish strong at the rim and his three point shot spreads the defense. Notice I said spreads the defense, but he is also very efficient when shooting the rock so most of the time he has open looks and knocks them down. Fields is a great impact player in my opinion and look for him to become more relevant is possible rookie of the year contention with Wall and Blake Griffin.
